Every 2 years, The Weight of Mountains program takes filmmakers and film artists into new territory; working from a different remote or challenging environment in the world each time to present new unique challenges for artists that push their boundaries and enable new adapted skill sets to emerge. It is a chance for new work development, professional development, new networks and collaborations, and inclusion in the symposia program. It provides the support of a curated and structured residency that enables freedom of artistic process, development of artistic vision, and a focus on developing modern filmmaking.
In 2015, we are heading to the edge of the Sahara desert in Morocco from September 18 – November 13. Our residency host accommodation will be Café Tissardmine.
